OKLAHOMA INDEPENDENT PETROLEUM ASSOCIATION ABOUT | CONTACT

Wildcatters Club
Since 1955, the OIPA has represented the state’s independent oil and natural gas industry at the Oklahoma state legislature, the Corporation Commission and other government bodies where our business interests are at risk. The most important weapon in our arsenal has been our association’s willingness to significantly support our political allies.

The Wildcatters PAC is comprised of OIPA members who annually contribute to help the OIPA accomplish objectives beyond the time, energy, experience and financial limitations of individual producers. Through personal contributions to the Wildcatters PAC, OIPA members fund the association’s direct involvement in state and federal legislative races by supporting our legislative friends and forging new relationships with emerging political leaders.

The oil and natural gas industry is always a potential target for punitive legislation and regulation. The Wildcatters PAC is a key reason OIPA has been able to not only deflect negative legislation, but also to be proactive in pushing for laws that improve independent producers’ ability to compete in the marketplace.

For more information about the OIPA's Wildcatters PAC, contact OIPA Vice President of Member Relations and PAC Fundraising Avery Smith at 405-601-2828 or asmith@oipa.com.
